New Noise Magazine is pleased to be bringing forth the dynamic and hook friendly tune “Always” by Rachel Ana Dobken. There’s plenty of swing and sway between the vocalists projected melodies, dancing between the grooving instrumentals and the steady pulse. This is a vivacious tune with audible energy being transferred, and can be heard below! “Always” is off of the upcoming release, When It Happens To You, out later this fall.

“‘Always’ is about the unquestionable feelings of finding love and knowing that desire is mutual. In a day and age where you have to sift through more BS than ever, it’s worth it when you finally find something that is REAL.” – Rachel Ana Dobken

The multi-talented artist has a knack for blending indie-rock, soul and jazz throughout her music, describing herself as “My Morning Jacket meets Lake Street Dive.” She’s been featured by The Aquarian Weekly, The Deli Magazine, NJ Arts, Relix Magazine, New York Times, Asbury Park Press, Travel+Leisure and more. All photographs for the record were taken by famed rock photographer, Danny Clinch, who has worked with Bruce Springsteen, Neil Young, My Morning Jacket, Ryan Adams and many more. Rachel works closely with Clinch as his Music Director at his Transparent Gallery in Asbury Park.

Dobken is a quadruple threat (drums, guitar, vocals and piano) and studied jazz at Bard College. Her music is raw and honest with a stage presence so emotionally captivating it’s been compared to the likes of Janis Joplin and Jeff Buckley. Catch her live at her pre-release show at Asbury Lanes with The Mercury Brothers on September 8th, and stay tuned for more music from her impending album!
